      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:spade: , K:diamond:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, SB folds, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.22) K:heart: , T:spade: , 8:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.22, Hero calls $0.22.

      Turn: ($0.66) 2:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.66, Hero calls $0.66.

      River: ($1.98) 9:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.98, BB calls $1.98.

      Final Pot: $5.94

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, kings (Ks Kd)
      BB shows (Tc 8d)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, kings (Ks Kd)

      How do you play on the river when you know you are ahead and the opponent is keen. I played it in Rush Poker and the only notes I had about him was that he was a winning player with long stack.

      Was my last bet correct? or too small? or we will never know?

      Hello bobiq,

      Definitely raise it on turn for value. Seems that he has some kind of hand, which is strong because he picked such a pot size bet. Therefore go for value right on turn.

      Best regards.
